Stereotypes are commonplace in today’s society. Who hasn’t been judged and labeled with what people perceive a certain demographic to be? And, on the flipside, we’re all guilty of judging others, and sometimes it’s hard to see past the images we have planted in our heads by the media. The pro-life and pro-choice communities are good examples of this type of thinking. It is assumed that both groups are extremists, with little patience for the views of the other side. I think it is because of these stereotypes that we have such a hard time understanding what it is that the other side stands for. These are some stereotypes about pro-lifers that I’ve heard in my lifetime, and how I respond to people who make these statements.
